Term Definition
Process of removing limitations imposed by Apple on devices running the iOS operating system (iPhone, iPad, and iPod). Users do this to gain root access to the operating system to be able to install apps obtained through means other than the official App Store. While this can allow the user greater control of what is installed on the device, it can also cause data corruption and make the device less secure.
